For learning disabilities including dyslexia. Some children’s brains have developed an inefficient system of processing written language that limits their ability to read easily.
Parents often suspect something is not quite right. School reports show the child is lagging behind the rest of the class. Tuition may help but the plateau reappears. Intervention is needed to make tuition effective.
The causes of reading disabilities involve auditory, visual and motor functions. Traditional methods of tuition treat each of these causes seperately. Programs that target each cause separately offer limited benefits. Recent brain scan research shows auditory, visual and motor functions must be activated and coordinated at the same time. This allows the neural bonds between letters and sound combinations to develop. This is vital to the reading process.
Cellfield is the first intervention to target the auditory, visual and motor pathways simultaneously. Clever software design expands working memory, strengthens attention and improves reading related motor functions.

For reading and perceptual problems.
Ever wondered why people wear coloured glasses for reading? These are most likely Irlen Spectral Filters that improve clarity and comfort in much the same way that 3D glasses improve clarity and comfort when watching a 3D movie. People with Irlen Syndrome have a sensitivity to certain light frequencies which results in pattern glare and pattern confusion. Irlen Filters, filter the frequencies that are causing the problems. Irlen symptoms may for some appear to be similar to dyslexia but there is a different causal nature, so an accurate diagnosis is essential.
